Over the past few weeks it’s been good to see people flooding to parks and the seaside to get their nature fix. And who can blame them? Being indoors for too long is no good for the immune system, which needs vitamin D. And although you can get that from food and supplements, nothing beats a healthy dose of sun (being sensible of course). It’s certainly helped me feel better. At the beginning of lockdown I experienced a range of emotions, from anger and frustration to despair and despondency, but over the past few weeks have found ways to lift my spirits, largely thanks to walks on the beach and, more recently, online meditation classes – I’m working through various ‘quests’ on the Mindvalley app and am doing Deepak Chopra’s 21-Day…

THE GOOD LIFE As any gardener will tell you, working with plants is great for feeling calmer, happier and generally better about everything. And it turns out that this contentment can extend to how we feel about our appearance too. Research from Anglia Ruskin University has shown that people who garden in allotments have a more positive body image, and are more accepting of their physical imperfections, than those who don’t. So, next time you’re having a crisis of confidence, tend to your houseplants or do a spot of weeding – it might just help! THE HEALTHIEST COFFEE Even without coffee shops running as normal, there are numerous ways to make a cup – whether you’re team cafetière or a fan of instant. Now scientists from the European Society of Cardiology have settled…

10 small steps to self-sufficiency

1 Collect rainwater Watering houseplants, shrubs and edible crops uses plenty of one of our most precious resources: water. Collecting your own rainwater – free from added fluoride or chlorine – is an important step towards what’s often referred to as a ‘closed-loop’ home. ‘It gives you a bit more control,’ says sustainability consultant Dr Paula Owen (green ‘We had two weeks of no rain a few months back, so I had to water the garden, but I had three water butts full, so none of it needed to come from the mains. I’m always conscious of not using mains-treated drinking water where possible, but if you’ve got your own supply of rainwater – which is preferable for plants and topping up ponds – you can call on it.’ 2 Start…
